I went rogue this weekend, purchasing a birthday gift for one of Thing 2's classmates that's a little out of the ordinary. Instead of buying a giftcard for a cool mall store like PacSun or Aeropostale or one for ITunes, as most of the kids do, I purchased an old-fashioned game. Scrabble.
I figured his little friend might appeciate a gift she could dig into as soon as she got home from her party, maybe striking up a friendly match with her parents or siblings. It's a fun game, educational, traditional -- in fact, no one can say a bad word (that's a pun) about Scrabble
But if Scrabble's not her cup of tea, she can always get back at me (see below). And if she gets the "W" or the "Y" on a triple letter score, she's bound to emerge a winner!
